  1. Party Chat through Xbox Companion App/Game Bar


    Problem:

    I recently purchased a Shure sm7b mic, cloud lifter, and goXLR mixer and set up a new PC to split game audio from party chat audio because I stream from an xbox one console through a capture card to a separate computer. Anytime I start or join a party through either the companion app or game bar on the PC, none of my output audio makes it to the rest of the party. I can hear them, but they can't hear me.

    Troubleshooting I've done:

    I've verified that the mic/mixer work appropriately by themselves. By using the routing table in the goXLR app I can push the dynamic mic to a headset 3.5 mm output.

    I've changed default audio settings within the companion app and game bar for input and output to route my dynamic mic to a mixer channel and I hear no audio.

    I've changed the default audio settings for both game bar and the companion app through the advanced sound settings that I access from the bottom right side of the taskbar.

    I've attempted to use the default hardware of the PC (mic and speakers) in multiple configurations to route my dynamic mic audio to both speakers and different mixer channels. I've used default hardware of the PC to route the built in mic audio to both speakers and different mixer channels. None of these methods have resulted in any of my audio being output appropriately.

    Other Notes:

    When I first join the party, I hear sounds in my headset. When other people join, I hear their audio, but they cannot hear me. I see the colored circular indicator that tells me that the app is picking up my audio, but I can't hear it through any channel and other people in the party cannot hear it either.

    I'm happy to provide screenshots of my settings if necessary.

    :)

    no notificacions in the xbox app

    If you have the latest update, then party invites don't go to the Xbox Console Companion app anymore, and they go straight to the Game Bar. Same for party chat on the PC.

    To access the Game Bar, just press the Windows button and G at the same time, you should be able to see your invites there.

    Issue with game invites on PC

    Hi,

    So you can start a Voice Chat with another player, and then add other people to that voice chat (or they can join in). Starting a Voice Chat with someone on Windows 10 via the Game Bar is a One-to-one to start, and you can't just start
    an "empty" party as you can on Console unless you use the Console Companion app.

    This page has a few
    more details on the Game Bar, but additionally I believe you can still use the Xbox Console Companion App to start a party as well in the more traditional manner.
